 I'd like a nicer way to return errors, especially when validating forms
 and returning multiple error messages.  Let's have a WP_Error class that
 holds error codes and messages.  An is_wp_error function checks return
 values to see if they are a WP_Error.

 function doer_of_stuff() {
   return  new WP_Error('broke', __("I've fallen and can't get up"));

 $return = doer_of_stuff();
 if ( is_wp_error($return) )
    echo $return->get_error_message();
